    Anastasia's Table Runner/Topper Swap - Signup Closed

    Anastasia’s Table Topper/Runner Swap

    This Swap will close November 15th.
    Welcome to my corner. This is my first swap and I look forward to sharing the experience with you. I have participated in many swaps on this forum and I enjoy them greatly. So let’s get to it.

    A Table Topper would be any shape that would be a centerpiece; this should be a minimum size of 16" across the longest point. For instance, I made a hexagon table topper and it is 16" from one corner to another at its widest point and each of its six sides are 8".
    A Table Runner should be a minimum size of 12"x28". Table runners are typically longer than they are wide.

    How it works:
    This is a secret swap. You will not know who has your name. The theme is winter.
    Design and method will be up to the creator but since this is something that will be on a table and likely spilled on, make sure whatever you make is washable on at least a gentle cycle.
    Please PM me with the following information by November 15th. I will then match up names and get them returned to you by November 20th. You will have until January 15th to mail the finished product.

    Board Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    City:
    State:
    Zip:
    Phone #: (this will not be given to your partner, this is for my use only in the event that a problem should arise)
    Your décor colors:
    Table Shape: Round, Square, Rectangle, Oval, etc

    It is encouraged and acceptable to post pictures of fabric choices, progress, and finished pieces as the receiver will not know from whom they are receiving. I would like some lively conversation; someone has to keep me awake through midterms and finals.

    Please notify me as soon as possible if you feel you cannot complete your obligation.

    People who fail to follow-through and do not notify me will be banned from any of my future swaps (should there be any) and your name will be given to other swap hosts. Obviously, things happen in life and I will certainly consider that, but you must communicate.
    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm ****

    So jump on board everyone and join the fun!

    I'm thinking about it Ana..... it is nice to know that it's not due until after the holidays. So it has that in it's favor.

    I'm in!

    Question: When you say "Your decor colors" do you mean in my house? Or the colors I am going to use in the design.

    pretty sure she means YOUR DECOR-THE PERSON FILLING OUT THAT LIL QUESTIONAIR and PM'ing it to her. then your secret swapper has an idea what colors to start with.
    hope that helps.

    Thanks cherrio, that's exactly what I meant. Doesn't mean they have to use those colors, since the theme is winter, but nice to know if it will clash horribly right?

    If in this becomes a regular thing I might shorten the time frame but I specifically wanted this one to extend past the holidays because I know how busy we all get and I don't want anyone to get stiffed because someone got too busy to finish.

    Just to clear up some possible confusion... Since not everyone celebrates Christmas, I chose Winter for a theme. And while for some people that may say oh, christmas colors of christmas design, which is perfectly fine.. for others it might mean blues and whites and icicles and cold. My point being, the interpretation of winter is for you to decide. So feel free to let it be anything that reminds you of winter. Hot chocolate, pie, snowmen, santa, etc. etc. Get it? I hope that helps get/keep your creative juices flowing.
